After I Married the Disabled War God As My Concubine - Chapter 182
Wan Hu was shocked, and his eyes turned into a look that one had when facing a formidable enemy.
Jiang Suizhou was totally oblivious to it.
He heard a report outside and thought it was some courtier who wanted to see him. He responded, having someone bring in the person who asked to see him, and then continued to read the memorial in his hand without raising his head.
He heard the sound of footsteps approaching, which stopped in front of the imperial desk. However, he did not hear the person speak.
Who was it?
Jiang Suizhou frowned. He raised his head to check the person out, and saw a soldier in armor. By the looks of his attire, he should be a high-ranking general.
He must have come for Huo Wujiu.
However, Huo Wujiu was busy searching and seizing Pang Shao’s old base these two days. He was not in the palace at the moment. When Jiang Suizhou saw the General standing there, staring at him with a puzzled expression, he thought something big had happened outside the city, so he opened his mouth to ask.
But before he could question him, the general spoke up first.
“General Huo is not here, so you have the guts to sit here!”
The general looked cold and fierce. He was tall and powerful. Now that he was aggressive, his voice boomed like a resounding bell. When he opened his mouth, he scared Jiang Suizhou and made his shoulders tremble.
He sat up straight and met the general’s gaze.
Jiang Suizhou was a little confused.
“What?” He asked.
The general sneered.
“The General must be really confused at the moment,” he said. “You should also understand your status. Just because of the General’s favor, you exceeded your authority. What? Do you still want to use such dirty means to fight for power and profit?”
Jiang Suizhou became more and more puzzled.
He raised his eyebrows, and was about to speak when he heard Meng Qianshan’s displeased voice behind him. He took a step forward and snapped unhappily, “Who are you? How dare you behave atrociously here! Is nobody still coming…”
Jiang Suizhou raised his hand, blocking the rest of his words.
He snapped back to his senses and vaguely realized that the general had misunderstood something.
His identity was indeed a bit sensitive at present. He knew that people in the army were most afraid of instability, so no matter what chaos occurred in the middle of the imperial court, orders to the army must not be ambiguous. There must be a definite and sole leader.
Currently, Huo Wujiu was their leader, and Huo Yuyan of Northern Liang was standing against Huo Wujiu. Even Huo Wujiu’s position in the army was not completely stable.
It was inconvenient for them to know that Jiang Suizhou was a remnant of the previous dynasty.
——In particular, Jiang Suizhou had a lot of real power in his hands.
For this reason, he had already told Huo Wujiu that it was best not to let everyone in the army know of his existence. He needed to wait until the big picture was settled before making plans.
Now the general in front of him most likely took him as a little boy toy that Huo Wujiu was keeping beside him.
“Then tell me, what’s my identity?” he asked. He put down the pen in his hand, propped his elbows on the desk curiously, and leaned forward.
He himself was unaware that whenever he smiled, the charm of his face would become extremely vivid.
The general immediately reacted as if he was greatly humiliated.
“Naturally, you’re General Huo’s plaything!” He snapped, “Since you know your identity, better get out of that position…”
“Who are you asking to get out?”
But at that moment, a deep voice sounded behind him.
Like a raging gale heralding a storm, the displeasure in that tone alone was unmistakable.
Huo Wujiu unexpectedly returned in time?
Jiang Suizhou was a little surprised. He raised his eyes and saw that the general, who was standing erect, also turned around hastily.
They both saw Huo Wujiu striding in with a gloomy face.
The general opened his mouth and was about to speak when his General stopped in front of him, with a look so cold that it could turn water into ice.
He knew that this was because he had scolded the General’s boy toy and was caught in the act.
He was unlucky, so he resigned himself to his fate.
“I’m asking you a question,” Huo Wujiu urged, with a voice squeezed out between his teeth.
When Huo Wujiu was upset, he was the most frightening. In particular, Jiang Suizhou was often scared to move. Although the general was unlike him, his frightened heart still trembled when he met those hostile and menacing eyes.
But at the same time, there was a wave of grief and anger that rose from his heart.
Although he was illiterate, he knew the tale of King You of Zhou and the princes of the beacon fire opera. From ancient times to the present, those unpromising men have always been bewitched by beauty, but it never occurred to them that their General could not escape this hurdle.
Grief and indignation could always spawn some righteous ardor in a loyal heart.
The general clenched her teeth as if defying death.
“He’s just a clay rabbit. General, even if you dote on him, he shouldn’t be allowed to interfere in government and military affairs!” He said stubbornly, “General, even if you kill this subordinate today, I haven’t said anything wrong!”
Huo Wujiu’s eyes were about to burst out with sparks of fire.
“Say it again, if you have the guts.” Huo Wujiu gritted his teeth and lifted his collar.
Jiang Suizhou hurriedly stood up from the throne, walked to them quickly, and pulled Huo Wujiu’s fist before it fell.
“Stop it.” Jiang Suizhou whispered, “He did it for your sake. I was just teasing him.”
After saying that, he smiled faintly, turned to the general who was waiting for Huo Wujiu to beat him, and explained in a warm voice, “General, please don’t mind it. I’m a nobody, so how can I recognize the things on the imperial desk? I was merely flipping over them out of boredom. If you have something to discuss, I will first…”
Huo Wujiu, whom he stopped, however, grabbed his wrist.
“Who are you calling General?” he asked Jiang Suizhou unhappily.
Jiang Suizhou was confused.
How come calling someone, General, was worth his jealousy?
